Decisions about Web Components

Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose Web Components in their tech stack.


I am looking into solutions for reusable components for an existing #MVC project which is build on .NET Core. Currently some functionality is being reuses via JavaScript. I have React experience so I know I can create React components and then reference it on the MVC app. The only problem is I do not know the full extent of it as the current app uses a lot of 3rd party libraries, not sure how that will effect React components. I am currently looking into WebComponents which is also another way for creating reusable components and it is compatible with any JavaScript library based on what I have seen on the website. Also to take in consideration that it should cause a re-write of the system.

So my question is, to future-proof reusable components, which will be best React or Web Components? And which will be more reliable to use with 3rd party libraries?
